'Riverdale' Star Returns to Production After Late-Night Car Crash

The accident allegedly occurred after midnight outside of Vancouver, Canada, where the series is filmed. "We have no further comment at this time".

The THR reported that despite the long hours that actors are required to be on the Riverdale set, cast and crew are not provided transportation either to or from set and Warner Bros Televisions policy is that actors must coordinate their own transit.

The studio released a statement on Thursday, which stressed its dedication to the "safety of cast and crew" and that if any one feels "tired or unsafe after working the Studio will provide a taxi, a driver or a hotel room upon request".

A studio spokesperson told Variety, "First and foremost, we are extremely grateful that K.J. Apa was uninjured during his recent accident".

The company said that they followed the Screen Actors Guild?mandated turnaround time of 12 hours from wrap time to next day call time for cast members and had conveyed the same to the cast and the crew.

"This is an extremely troubling situation and we are deeply concerned about the safety of performers on the Riverdale set". On the day of the accident, KJ worked 14.2 hours. Original reports were that Apa had worked a 16-hour day before crashing his vehicle.

KJ has repeatedly been informed about making production aware if he is exhausted or feels unsafe, and if so, either a ride or hotel room will be provided for him.

Taken to the hospital immediately afterwards, Apa is said not to have experienced any major injuries.

Warner Bros. TV was quick to respond to the controversy, pointing out that the actors are repeatedly told they can call a taxi, driver, or hotel room on the studio's dime - per the union's rules - should they feel too exhausted to drive themselves.

Riverdale season 2 will premiere October 11 on The CW. "We also sent a doctor to his home later that same day for a follow-up to confirm his well-being". The statement also said that the policy is "communicated to all cast and crew, both in writing and verbally, at the beginning of production and is reiterated continuously throughout the duration of production".
